- General Remarks: Good description of the adult female given by Cockerell (1903a). Ferris (1950b: 191) indicated that this species was described from specimens of immature female. Williams & Granara de Willink (1992) confirmed the generic assignment, but could not verify its identity. The species remains unidentifiable until the immature syntypes can be linked with similar specimens and their adult female.
